Jack Dennis is now the go to guy for what not to admit to on an open forum on the Internet because someone just might think he 's being serious instead of just plain STUPID!! Now go find you another nut job to cheer lead for, they appreciate your commentary.
Z fister AKA the blood of Asterix you simpleton there is NOTHING you can tell me about Dr.King and what he stood for, NOTHING!!!! As the saying goes you probably weren't even a speck in your daddy's eye during that period and it's for damn sure other than what you read in some history book, you know NOTHING of the things Dr. King struggled and died for to make life better in this country for ALL.
As for what he would think of Barack Obama what makes you think you are even qualified to make such a statement? You sat at your mama's computer one day and took a break from one of your video games to google The names of Black Conservatives. You managed to get the names of Sowell, Williams, Carson and Thomas. You thought you were on to something no one else knew and you were going to come back here and throw their names out like you really knew who you were talking about. It's just too bad you never bothered to do more actual RESEARCH into why they are not respected and looked to for leadership in the Black Community., why there is a DISCONNECT between them and the Black Community. So you come back here with your fake outrage when I refer to them as uncle toms because that is what they are. You ARE NOT connected to the Black Community and just because you google some names does not give you that connection. Of course neither are any of them.
Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West are two of President Obama's harshest critics. However, their criticism is based on their belief he has not done enough as President to lift people out of poverty and to address the still existing racial and economic disparities in this country, Unlike Sowell, Williams, Carson and Thomas who feel he has done too much and accuse him of being a Socialist. So, even in the Black Community there is disagreement on the impact of Barack Obama's Presidency. As for Dr. King being a Republican that is a LIE started by Republicans. There has NEVER been any evidence to prove that.
As for what I wanted to see happen in Ferguson, you are a pathetic liar when you claim I wanted them to riot. What happened in Ferguson was NOT a riot. Yes, there was looting and stealing but it was not a RIOT. Of course ignoramuses like you thought it was a riot because those a$$holes in the Ferguson Police Dept brought out all of their military equipment but it was no RIOT. Evidently the Governor didn't even understand or he would never have had to waste money bringing in the National Guard. What I want to see happen in Ferguson and anywhere else where the police have stepped over the line by becoming the criminal instead of protecting people from criminals is JUSTICE for their victims. NOTHING MORE AND NOTHING LESS.
Now get back to your video games before your Mama tells you to cut it off for the night.
I take a quick glance at the rants of a Moocher like yourself and wonder how much longer the TFP will let you continue to post here w/o paying for the privilege of having a subscription to do so like the rest of us.
See how you try to twist what I wrote or maybe you are just too stupid to google -the blood of Asterix. NOT that phony name you call yourself. Now go play some more.
In 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King ,Jr came to Memphis, Tennessee to participate in a Protest March with the Sanitation Workers who were asking for a minimum wage, health benefits and the right to have Union Representation. At the time those workers were not paid the minimum, they worked long hours, had no paid vacation, no time off unless it was w/o pay, and last but certainly not least had no health benefits whatsoever.
Dr. King came in March and during his very first speech, he said it was a shame that we live in the richest nation in the world but ask the poor to work for poverty wages. The next day the First March took place. Unfortunately, it turned violent and Dr. King was taken away. He left only to return a couple of weeks later in April to lead another peaceful,non-violent march. Two nights before that second march he gave his now famous " I've Been To The Mountain Top" speech. He was killed the next day.
That was in 1968, the workers were asking for MINIMUM WAGES which at the time would have been $2 an hour. In today's economy that would be about $15 an hour. So over40 years has passed, some progress has been made but the minimum wage has progressed very little in those 40 years. Those Sanitation Workers were men with families. Most of the employees at those restaurants are workers with families. Those restaurants can afford to pay their workers more than $ 10 an hour. Maybe if they did pay their workers a livable wage they would get better workers.
Long before he died Dr. King had focused not only on Civil Rights but also on lifting ALL out of poverty by improving their daily existence through better education and better wages. But what eventually cost him his life is when he decided to speak out against the military complex and it's involvement in the Vietnam War. That is when the verbal attacks and threats against his life were escalated to the point he knew it would just be a matter of time for his life on this earth.
The greed of some in this country knows no bounds. It's considered socialism to demand people be treated as human beings and allowed the opportunity to make a decent living. Yes, progress has been made since Dr. King 's death. We have an African American President and AG but when things happen as they did in Ferguson, one realizes we still have a long way to go and it's a shame.
First you say it's a name from a cartoon, then you say I made it up because there is nothing out there like that but as I stated all you have to do is google the name as I posted earlier and you will find it. You are just a simpleton playing video games. Now go play some more because it won't be long before your mama will tell you to get off her computer. LOL
LOL another Repub wanna be Prez just got convicted. Ex Virginia GOP Governor McDonnell tried to throw his wife under the bus by testifying she was the one taking all the illegal gifts from a vitamin salesman. The jury didnt buy it so now he and she are going to do some time in prison. Just two years ago he was vetted as a possible running mate for Romney. Now let's see who falls next from the ranks of GOP Governors. LOL
There's Christie from NJ who is still under investigation; Perry fromTexas who was just indicted and of course there's Scott Walker of Wisconsin who is under investigation. Looks like the GOP field for 2016 won't have as many candidates as they had in 2012 because most of their rising stars will be in jail. Cruz, Rubio, Jeb Bush and Rand Paul are all they have left. LOL Maybe Sarah Palin will throw her hat in the ring. That's about all she's capable of doing anyway is throwing a hat. LOL

Now if this is a cartoon character of your daughter's then I suggest you pay more attention to what she's playing but it's not your daughter's cartoon character, it's yours and you know it. Now go play some more before your mama takes your computer time away.
BTW all one has to do is google the following: the blood of Asterix to find the truth.
Maximus, with your 3:02 post you've just proven what a low-life ,ignorant liar you are and anyone who cheers a low-life such as you on is no better than a gutter rat same as you with your fake a$$ fantasies. BTW you mentioning Eric Holder's mouth And the activity you wish Mr. Bennett would perform indicates what many have suspected all along with your rants against gays. Nice of you to so publicly emerge from the closet. Now be a good Taco worker and get back to the grill, the dinner crowd is pulling up to the drive thru window.
Jack Dennis anyone who stupidly admits to a heinous crime on a public forum on the internet as some kind of "tongue and cheek" comment is not qualified to judge anyone's intelligence or level of knowledge because it's for damn sure you shouldn't . Now go find you another nut job to cheer lead for.
